Cheltenham vs Man City: Predictions
Pep Guardiola’s side are well and truly back on track domestically following a shaky start to the season which saw them only a bystander in the title race. However, their early woes are now a distant memory with City just two points behind leaders, Manchester United.
City’s stunning form has seen them not lose a game since their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in November 2020. In a run of 16 games unbeaten, City brushed aside Birmingham City in the previous round of the competition in what proved to be a routine 3-0 win.
Saturday’s hosts progressed after a 2-1 win against Mansfield Town, however, that victory ended a run of six straight games without a win and since they have failed to win either of their two league games.
Since their defeat to Spurs, Guardiola’s side have only conceded three goals in total. The League Two side will likely need a miracle if they hope to progress past the four-time Premier League champions.

Cheltenham vs Man City: Match Stats
With Sergio Aguero missing a lot of the season through injury (and out of this game due to testing positive for COVID-19), Gabriel Jesus has failed to convince Guardiola having only netted twice in the Premier League. Should be given the chance on Saturday the Brazilian forward will be presented a golden opportunity to boost his confidence against a struggling Cheltenham backline.
City currently sit third in most shots on target by a Premier League side this season with 101, and with their current form in mind, it could be a long afternoon for the Cheltenham goalkeeper.
